. >> stephanie: laura in rockford, illinois. hello, laura welcome. >> caller: hi, john mccain should be embarrassed, so should lindsey graham. they should be ashamed of themselves. they look like they're beating up on some woman who doesn't deserve it. >> stephanie: they look like bullies. that's why i'm glad we gave money to the trevor project. bullying is bullying. lindsey graham standing up and saying, she shouldn't have said anything. do you think they would have been screaming cover up? >> caller: i want to make one comment. i know darn well before the meeting with susan rice, i betcha anything john mccain said no matter what happens no matter what she says, we're troubled. >> stephanie: i think they set her up. they said, we're willing to listen and softening on her. they set her up so she'll come and talk to them. and then they open it up again. >> and they made sure they were closed door meetings so you wouldn't know what susan rice said, and they come at her any way. >> we're nor troubled now than before. well what did she say? >> stephanie: go ahead. >> caller: i thought it

over the ambassador comments following the benghazi attack. senator john mccain, lindsey graham, kelly ayotte of new hampshire met privately with her today. it did not go well. listen. >> bottom line, i'm more disturbed now than i was before. information given the american people was wrong. ambassador rice said it was wrong and to be clear, if you are an ambassador to the united nations you go well beyond the unclassified talking points in the daily preparation for that job. >> we are significantly troubled by the answers that many got. some we didn't get. >> she had no intention to mislead the american people. >> the white house blames the critics. listen. >> the focus on some might say the obsession on comments made on sunday shows seems to me and to many to be misplaced. >> the national shows get too much attention. are you surprised that ambassador rice didn't have a better explanation for her interview? >> dana: i got home last night and checked e-mail for the last time and saw she will have a meeting. i said they have it wrapped up. go in and smooth it over. you should have these

[ applause ] >> let's bring in karen finney, msnbc political analyst and former communications director for the dnc. is this a communications problem with the american people. now, it is susan collins and bob corker. they are in on the frey to smear susan rice. >> i want to take one step back on this 1998 business susan collins was talking about. if we really truly want to go there, let's remember that those attacks in 1997 were when osama bin laden came to the floor and we had a clear sense of what he was about and attempting to do. if we are going to go there, let's talk about the massive intelligence failure
. leprechaun jon was toughing away on -- john mccain was puffing away calling into question rice's intellectual, vowing to block her if she's nominated. it is incredible the difference if you look back at transcripts of them defending condy rice, right? as saying she was not the -- what did eric boehlert say? she was just the consumer of bad intelligence. she wasn't the author of it. that was a war that led to what, 4,000 americans dead and how many millions of dollars. meanwhile, susan rice is you know doing the intelligence that was given to her about something that already happened. >> right. right. and did you see the thing this morning in think progress that mccain actually was on tv on september 16th and said -- and said the same thing susan rice did. it is hard to know exactly what to play. i don't have that information. i know there were demonstrations, that there was a group of either al-qaeda or some radical islamists so he said -- you know, he said that there was -- that there was a demonstration and that
director, michael morell, meeting with republican senators john mccain, kelly ayotte and lindsay graham, who were not pleased with what they heard. >> it is clear that the information she gave the american people was incorrect when she said it was a spontaneous demonstration triggered by a hateful video. it was not, and there was compelling evidence at the time that that was certainly not the case, including statements by libyans as well as other americans who are fully aware that people don't bring mortars and rocket-propelled grenades to spontaneous demonstrations. >> in a statement after the meeting, ambassador rice said that neither she nor anyone in the administration intended to mislead the american people. but the breaking news concerns the part in her sunday talk show statements that substituted the word "extremists" for al qaeda. remember, the administration said she was working from edited talking points. the question is, who did the editing? today, the senators say that acting director morell told them the fbi did. they say they later heard from the cia that he had quote, mis
a lot of here. think about the last two people who lost the election. john mccain, and his news, john kerry, still a big force in the senate and maybe a nominee for secretary of state. it's hard to see mitt romney in the roles. remember that one of the ideas that mitt romney floated during the presidential campaign, just might be part of the deal that gets -- >> which is the cap. >> a cap. he would put a pretty low cap, $17,000 on high income taxpayers. it's possible that will survive even though mitt romney's presidential prospects did not. >> or could be a $50,000 cap or something even higher than that. now chris cizilla, let's talk about the lack of civility or the contentiousness of this susan rice situation where she's back on the hill today. let me play a little bit of susan collins, republican from maine, known as a moderate, discussing the possibility of a john kerry nomination to be secretary of state. >> i think john kerry would be an excellent appointment and would be easily confirmed by his colleagues. >> at the same time, there was really no love there for susan rice and
it will be to get her confirmed. john mccain made it clear on fox yesterday that if the president appoints senator john kerry, the road to confirmation will look quite a bit different. >> john kerry came within a whisker of being president of the united states. i think that works in his favor. i don't have anything in his ba background like this tragedy in benghazi that would make me r l really want to carefully examine the whole situation. >> now one problem for mccain and graham as they prepare to wage this fight with the white house, they lost their third amigo, gave them bipartisan credibility. joe lieberman acted yesterday as a character witness for susan rice, telling reporters on the hill that he supports her. >> i would not feel that her appearances and anything she said on those sunday morning talk shows september 16 would disqua disqualify her for appointment to any other office. >> rice defended herself in a statement following her meetings writing, quote, while we certainly wish we had had perfect information just days after the terrorist attack as is often the case the intelligence a
is not unprecedented. in 2008, then president elect obama met with john mccain at the obama campaign chicago's headquarters. vice president al gore and george w. bush had a private meeting after gore officially conceded the election. and president clinton gave the defeated bob dole a presidential medal of freedom just days before the second clinton inauguration. other rivals weren't as conciliatory. herbert hoover and franklin d. roosevelt reportedly sat in silence to the inauguration. walter mondale told politico he and ronald reagan never sat down for this kind of conversation. and is a former aide to john kerry told politico that kerry and george w. bush never spoke to one another after john kerry conceded the election. joining me now, pulitzer prize winning columnist for "the washington post" and msnbc analyst eugene erickson. and we have all -- i won't speak for you. i have -- i have more than once, i think, said we will keep in touch, let's keep in touch, to someone i did not then keep in touch with. i don't think i've ever been as phony about it, though, as these two guys today promis
inside the country. senator john mccain has also been keeping a close eye on syria. you'll hear from him tonight. >>> and the image of a man in the final seconds of his life about to be struck by a subway train. we'll ask dr. drew pinsky about why he was being photographed instead of rescued. there was a lot of people standing around on the platform. should they have gotten involved. a lot more at the top of the hour. >> we'll see you in a few minutes. >>> now our fifth story "outfront." did hollywood get access to classified information? "zero dark 30" is about the situation in which osama bin laden was killed. it hasn't opened yet but has oscar buzz and is sloweded in controversy. republicans say the obama administration gave directors unprecedented and possibly inappropriate access to classified information. the white house denies this. here's barbara starr. >> you don't think she's a little young for the hard stuff? >> washington says she's a killer. >> reporter: it's a hollywood spy thriller with as much as oscar buzz as it has controversy. "zero dark 30," the story hunt for osama b
credit. john mccain, kelly ayotte senator brasso scott brown, susan collins, olympia snowe, dick lugar lease a mckowski. the rest voted no lead by tea partyer mike lee from utah and the tea party said, no no, we can't do this because this is going to interfere with our national so far writtenty. no, it's not. and. >> and this is going to interfere with parents' rights to control their own children. >> we all want to support the best interest of the child every child but i and many of my constituents including those who send their children to private or religious schools very long justifiable doubts that foreign u.n. body, a committee operating out of geneva switzerland should decide what is in the best interest of the child at home. insane. totally insane. >> that's are the flat earnthers. mike lee was joined by surprise surprise, rick santorum that said this will prevent parents. again, again, the treaty on disabledties just says all of the disabled people around the world should have the same opportunities that the united states does. hold the unite
power players supporting this? senators tom harkin, the dem cat -- democrat from iowa, john mccain from arizona pote in favor of this because their respective states, arizona rich with copper, iowa rich with metals. they would benefit from this. and here's the bottom line, if we do this -- switch over to the dollar coin -- we might get rid of the penny altogether. and that would be good, megyn, because the penny now costs more to produce than it's worth, about a penny and a half to produce a penny. not really logical. megyn: why didn't people like the dollar coin, the sacajawea? >> reporter: right, on the back, because the presidents kept switching. too heavy. too bulky. you had ten bucks in your pocket, you know, you hate having change in your pocket, that was the big complaint, just too heavy. megyn: i liked it. it felt like more than a dollar, you know? it felt like i could use it for, i don't know, something real. [laughter] >> reporter: well -- megyn: i guess i was in the minority. so we'll see whether there's any objection from george washington although abraham lincoln although t
since reagan. the party that's supposed to be against immigration nominated john mccain. so it's not only been where the party actually has been electing people, it's where its policies are. if you want free market economics you want talent and youth coming to this country. if you're a national security conservative, why is the united states going to run the world or be very important and powerful in the world in 100 years and japan isn't? because one, they forget to have kids and they don't do immigration. china, same thing. and europe the same thing. immigration is our competitive advantage against the rest of the world as an economic power, a military power. >> so what other wounds would you look at? >> that's one piece. i think we need to look at -- and our candidates. we ran a candidate, rahmny, who was a great guy much he's not what the 86% of obama's ads said about him. but how do you make the case of how rahmny would govern when he was governor of massachusetts for four years, pre-tea party. >> let's stipulate rahmny was a bad candidate. how would you get a better one?
